Tipped in Company and GQ magazines, she has been nominated for a Young Achiever Award. She has also received a Scottish Library Award and was shortlisted for the Saltire Book Prize. She sits on the committee for the Society of Authors in Scotland (where she lives) and on the board of UK-wide writers' collective '26' the campaign for the importance of words. She blogs on the Guardian site about her writing life and puts her hand up to being a 'twitter evangelist'.

She mentors writers for the Scottish Book Trust. Sara is also a member of the Historical Writers' Association (for Secret of the Sands and The Secret Mandarin) and the Crime Writers' Association (for the Mirabelle Bevan Mystery series).
